After completing his degree in Mechanical Engineering in 2000, Mike Serig began his career as a project manager for a large, commercial concrete company. Mike eventually became the Regional Manager for the company, overseeing the structural concrete components of large commercial projects such as the Veterans Memorial Arena (Jacksonville, FL), David L. Lawrence Convention Center (Pittsburgh, PA) and PNC Park, home to the Pittsburgh Pirates.
In 2013, Earthscapes was founded and Mike’s lifelong dream of owning a business was fulfilled. Mike now uses the invaluable experience that he gained throughout his professional career to helping homeowners achieve their dream outdoor spaces.
Mike’s interest in renewable energy and repurposed materials also resulted in the creation of Earthscapes’ granite recycling operations. In this process, granite countertop cutoff material is repurposed into luxury granite pavers. Earthscapes is the only company in Florida that produces its own pavers made of 100% recycled granite. This ingenuity is evidence of Earthscapes’ commitment to remaining ahead of trends and developing fresh hardscaping ideas.
Mike is also very involved in the local community. He has served on the Board of Mercy Support Services since 2013, and became Chairman of the Board in 2016. Mercy Support Services is dedicated to helping families and individuals in crisis by giving them a “hand up, not hand out.” This is accomplished through providing housing, shelter, training programs, food, child care and other resources to those in need.

Mike has also been an active member of Celebration Church in Orange Park, FL for over 15 years.
